Why I cancelled crossover service —Adeboye

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God , Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said he cancelled his church ’ s crossover service which was scheduled for December 31, 2020, so as to teach his congregation a lesson on submission.
The Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force on COVID -19 had issued a curfew between 12am and 4 am as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.
As a result , the Christian Association of Nigeria had also directed churches to close their crossover service before 11pm so that worshippers could return home before the curfew period .
The directive meant that the crossover services which customarily start a few hours before 12am and end some minutes past 12am of January 1 won ’ t hold .
The PUNCH had earlier reported that some megachurches subsequently adjusted or cancelled physical crossover services and opted for the virtual experience .
Delivering a sermon at his church ’ s first thanksgiving service of the year 2021 themed, ‘ Divine Lifting ’ , Adeboye said he cancelled the church ’ s physical crossover service to teach a lesson in submission.
He said, “I know some of you have been asking me ‘ Daddy , why did you cancel the crossover service ? We were getting ready to come to the camp to sing and dance and jump ’ . I will tell you why .
“Reason number one , I saw the opportunity to teach you another lesson on submission. When you obey in agreement with what your boss says, that is called cooperation . When your boss asks you to do something and you do it, even though you do not agree with him , it is called submission. Submission is when you obey even when you don ’ t agree.
“Some said by 10pm you should close . Another one said by 11pm you should close . I said, okay , let ’ s agree and close in our home . So , I said we ’ ll stay in our house and crossover at 12 midnight . ”
Commending the government and its officials , Adeboye said they “are doing a very good job, they are trying their best. When you ask a man to do a job only God can do, don ’ t blame him if he makes mistakes . They are trying and doing their very best, humanly speaking , to protect us . ”
